Over the decades, going to the hospital for care has been a mandate, causing heavy inconvenience to immobile and senior patients. As an outcome of this, they show preference to home healthcare services, since it is inexpensive, without compromising on the efficiency of hospital-based service. With the onset of affordable and straightforward technology, it has become easier to support home healthcare services to engage with the patients and monitor their well-being. Without a second thought, technology has demonstrated the ability to provide higher standards of home-based healthcare.
As a stellar example of technology’s play in the home healthcare arena, artificial intelligence (AI) can be expected to prove its worth in providing early intervention for chronic disorders. Through the ability to monitor vital signs of patients, AI can avert a potentially life-threatening situation. The inability to reach out to a doctor due to delay in appointment scheduling has been a challenge for patients. Bringing an end to this predicament, telemedicine negates the need for a clinic visit by providing virtual consultation at home. Although telemedicine has been a part of the healthcare ecosystem, the introduction of smart devices, wearables, and video conferencing will prove to be the first steps to a revolution. The introduction of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has the potential to compile the data produced by medical devices such as ECG monitors and blood pressure and glucose estimators. The compiled data can be used to monitor a patient of a daily basis and detect any anomalies. In addition to all the aforementioned advancements, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), big data and blockchain are expected to find significant places in the home healthcare arena.
